OLD hospital job was quite a bit more active, what with running around for 5-8 hours getting people’s food orders, delivering food, restocking food etc.
NEW Stanford job consists of sitting on my butt, making phone call after phone call.
With my new work phone…yes a flip phone! It completely does not matter what phone I have to make calls, however it definitely took a lot of “getting reaquainted with.”
I’m currently working as a research assistant on a study that requires me to get all of the dietary data. I call all the particiants for multiple days to get multiple dietary recalls (a recall of what they ate the day before).
It’s definitely a change, and definitely has its pros and cons! (PS I work from home so it’s nice I do not have to commute the 1 hour+ to Palo Alto everyday).
OLD nannying job taking care of little ones…I miss them!!
I freaking LOVE that picture. HAHA.
While nannying little ones can get tough, I took care of this little baby 5 days a week from 3-18 months. Adorbs.
And toddlers are hilarious!!
NEW nannying job is for school-aged kids. Which is great as well! With older kids, you have more of a connection and “hang-out” with them, have conversations….plus they do more work for you 😉
OLD hairstyle…last time you saw me I had long hair!
Fear the Beard circa August 2011.
NEW hairstyle…Earlier in 2012 I got it cut. And since my hair takes so long to grow….it’s still pretty short.
(This was the day after, when the ends flipped up a lot…but shows the length!)
It’s slowly getting longer…
(I miss the beach!!)
okay okay…not exactly my backyard. But at least I’m close and able to go to more Giants games now! 😉
Including Game 7 of the NLCS!!!!
Soaked and lovin’ life 😀
OLD social activities…being with friends and roommate!
Going out dancing on the weekends
(sweeeeet dance moves)
And just hanging around my peers in general
NEW social activities…
Hanging around the crazy fam
Trips to SLO, Sacramento, San Fran, etc. to see old friends…
And my nightly friend, TV
Trust me, I’ve been watcing a lot of TV. Which I like and don’t like. I like the shows!! But I miss being social. It’s very hard when with job you work from home, and with your other job you nanny. I do have a couple friends around the area and try to see them occasionally, but it’s definitely not the same!
What’s new for YOU since I was last blogging? Catch me up! 🙂
PS: Will update you on the ankle appointment I had today tomorrow!!
